MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Mount Vernon Mayor Richard Thomas is being accused of locking officials out as payback over being subpoenaed in the “zombie home” situation, according to News12.

Councilman Andre Wallace told News12 that he, and others, were not told that the exterior locks at City Hall were changed over the weekend.

A city official said locks were changed after it was discovered that someone had gotten into an area where confidential documents are stored, the News12 story said.
